Emgage PAC Pennsylvania endorses Cherelle Parker for mayor of Philadelphia. During our rigorous endorsement process, Parker clearly stood out as the best leader for the city, given her stances on public safety, education, healthcare, and social and criminal justice. Parker has a proven track record and has done outstanding work as a former state representative and two-term Philadelphia city council member. Her engagement with the Philadelphia Muslim community has been exemplary over the years, particularly with the outstanding support she has offered to mosques in the 9th Council District, which she formerly represented.
According to her bio, Parker is running to make our city safer, cleaner and greener – a city where access to economic opportunity and building generational wealth is not concentrated at the top, but reachable for anyone living in any neighborhood.
